What does Err3 mean on taylor body fat scale?

Remove your shoes and socks and wet your feet slightly with a damp cloth if you receive the "ERR3" error. ERR3 is a contact error and your feet should ideally be bare and wet to achieve an accurate body-fat reading.
  • Step off the scale and wait for it reset. Remove your shoes and socks and wet your feet slightly if you receive either the "ERR4" or "ERR5" errors, which means your body-fat or body measurements are out of range.
  • Reset the scale if it doesn't work or you continue to receive error messages. Remove the battery and set the scale on a flat surface. Stand still on the scale for five seconds and step off. Re-install the battery and place the scale back on the flat surface. Place one foot on the scale until it displays zeros or dashes. Remove your foot and wait for the scale to turn off. Step back on the scale to weigh yourself

    What does it mean when the jewelry scale read over

    Jewellery scales are light, so if you put a bag of sugar ion it, it will show an error.

    If you mean you put a 1 gram weight on it and it shows over, then it can be three things. One is that the tare is out, so you need to zero it empty. Or your 1 gram weight has been fiddled with, or, the scale is faulty.

    I have a Taylor body fat analyzer and scale model #5563 that keeps showing Err 2. It won't read any weight whatsoever... it just goes stratight to the Error message. Do you know what that means and how I...

    From the Taylor Site

    Here are the basic ERR messages and their meanings:
    • Error 0: Initialization
    • Error 1: Instability (scale is on an uneven surface ex: carpet)
    • Error 2: Unit may have been jarred or unit was overloaded (customer went over the maximum weight capacity)
    • Error 3: Contact error (Feet were not wet for Body fat reading, feet aren’t big enough to reach sensors)
    • Error 4: Body fat is out of range
    • Error 5: Water is out of range
    I got an ERR2 message and now the scale doesn’t work. What should I do? The following reset procedure is used when the scale shows an err2, err, 0.0, inaccurate weight, or some other unusual error.
    1. Remove the battery from the scale.
    2. Sit the scale on a hard surface floor.
    3. Step up onto the scale, stand still for about 5 seconds and step off the scale.
    4. Re-install your battery.
    5. Place the scale back on a hard surface floor.
    6. With one foot only, place just enough weight on the scale for the display shows zero’s or dashes. Once you see zeros or dashes remove your foot.
    7. Wait for the scale to turn off again.
    8. Step up onto the scale for a weight.
    If the reset is successful, you should receive a weight right away. If you continue to receive one of the error messages above please call our Customer Service department or contact us via email. You can also try the reset procedure a 2nd time. Sometimes the reset procedure will work the second time.

    you didn't say the brand, but have you tried looking up the manufacturer, I know a lot of times there will be an are on their website where you can request something like that, or even get a phone number for the maker and request one over the phone:) hope that helps you.
